I didn't know that you actually discourage repeating speakers and that Father's Day should be avoided

I appreciate the efforts of AHA associates and volunteers but come on guys, help us more easily enjoy the conference a little more often.
Not true Denny. I saw a wedding going on in Minneapolis. Somehow I don't think we minded their presence as much as the other way around ;-)
Free beer..................... thats only because you're Denny f##king Conn
Thats tremendous though, free beer
Nice! Are they the airline that I have heard actually has some decent beer as well?Dude! what airline were you on? I just flew out to Ohio on Continental, and I about had to pay the stewardess to kick me in the sack. It was pathetic.
I would like to see the AHA make the competition software used for the National Competition available as shareware to the clubs.

I don’t think that the problem of crushed grain is denaturing of the enzymes. The problems I have come across have to do with oxidation but I don’t know how much it takes to produce a noticeable difference in home brewed beer. This is very similar to the hot side aeration debate that flares up once in a while. Exposing just starch to air should not be a problem since that is what we do with flour all the time. There are also some fats and oils in the malt embryo which have the potential to get rancid when exposed to air. No idea if the small amount that is in there is enough to make a difference.
Will it be the third weekend of June again next year?
Well, they do require the AHA/BJCP Sanctioned Competition Program form, and it does ask for the recipe, OG, FG, yeast used, starter etc. etc. etc.
This past weekend a member on here posted about entering an IPA which was fermented with lager yeast... if a judge read that, it will automatically taint their perception. How can it be a blind taste test if the judges are told what and how, shouldn't they be able to detect those things without being told?
Hey, as for dollar amounts, that could put a slant on things as well. jmo... it seems almost political really.
